Description Laura Pardo 2018-07-26 18:58:57 UTC
A flaw was found in Django. If the django.middleware.common.CommonMiddleware and the APPEND_SLASH setting are both enabled, and if the project has a URL pattern that accepts any path ending in a slash (many content management systems have such a pattern), then a request to a maliciously crafted URL of that site could lead to a redirect to another site, enabling phishing and other attacks.

Comment 16 Summer Long 2021-03-27 05:26:17 UTC

This issue did not affect the versions of python-django as shipped with Red Hat Update Infrastructure 3 as the vulnerable code was introduced in a newer version of the package.

Subscription Asset Manager is now in a reduced support phase receiving only Critical impact security fixes. This issue has been rated as having a security impact of Moderate, and is not currently planned to be addressed in future updates.

Although Red Hat Satellite 6 contains the vulnerable component, it is not affected by this flaw since the condition to exploit the vulnerability cannot be satisfied.

In Red Hat OpenStack Platform, because the flaw has a lower impact and the fix would require a substantial amount of development, no update will be provided at this time for the RHOSP python-django package.
